Our Lady calls us to be Joyful witnesses




Dear children! I call you, that this time be for all of you, a time of witnessing. You, who live in the love of God and have experienced His gifts, witness them with your words and life that they may be for the joy and encouragement to others in faith. I am with you and incessantly intercede before God for all of you that your faith may always be alive and joyful, and in the love of God. Thank you for having responded to my call."

Comment--Our Lady calls us to be witnesses. Every one of us should become a witness. Faith provides us with strength to be witnesses of Jesus in this world. It is precisely thanks to the testimony of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the apostles and martyrs of the first Church that we have been given the legacy of faith in the Triune God.

Comment--Our Lady is asking us all to find ways to witness to our faith, to Jesus and His love, and to the love of our Mother as well. We have only to listen in our hearts and use our heads we will all find a way to witness to the love of God!
May our faith always be alive and joyful!!
In Jesus and Mary!

We can see the hand of that same Holy Spirit working now through our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI. Only three weeks after Our Lady gave this beautiful message about the faith, Pope Benedict announced on October 16 a "Year of Faith" for the whole Church, to begin on October 11, 2012 and end on The Feast of Christ the King, November 24, 2013! It is not an accident that both Our Lady and the Holy Father are speaking about strengthening our faith in these days.
